What to watch for in WPIAL sports on May 6, 2021: Plenty of playoff possibilities in Section 2-6A

There might be a little scoreboard watching between a pair of Section 2-6A high school baseball games Thursday.

Norwin, Hempfield and Mt. Lebanon have all secured playoff spots in the section with three teams still alive for the postseason.

Upper St. Clair, Baldwin and Canon-McMillan all control their own destiny heading into Thursday.

The Panthers close out section play with a home game against first-place and top-ranked Norwin. If USC wins, it is playoff bound.

Baldwin and Canon-McMillan face each other twice in the next two days, weather permitting of course.

The Highlanders and Big Macs meet Thursday at Wild Things Park in Washington.

If either team sweeps, it will qualify for the postseason.

However, if Upper St. Clair loses and Baldwin and Canon-McMillan split, all three teams will qualify, meaning all six Section 2 teams will be playoff bound.

The two games Thursday begin at 4 p.m. and can be seen or heard on HSSN.
